The Boston Bruins take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden while the Knicks and Celtics clash at TD Garden in two highly anticipated midday contests. Rajon Rondo and the Celtics will try to keep their minds focused amidst Linsanity as Boston’s pesky point guard should prove to be a formidable force on defense against Jeremy Lin. Rondo’s quickness and hustle on D could be the antidote for Lin’s creativity, vision and superb passing ability. Meanwhile, Tim Thomas the Bruins battle the Rangers at MSG looking for their first win against the #1 team in Eastern Conference this season. Thomas will be under added pressure after Tuukka Rask left Saturday’s game against the Islanders with what looked like a potentially serious injury. This would be a big win for the B’s as the Rangers appear to be their fiercest competition in the quest for the Cup. It’s shaping up to be a wild Rivalry Sunday, Boston sports fans! Enjoy.
